Microsoft has just announced a second “hybrid work” digital event that the firm is holding on Thursday, September 9, at 8 AM PT. There isn't much in the way of information, but the company says this virtual event will focus on the "trends shaping the future of hybrid work."

Microsoft’s last digital event termed “The future of hybrid work” was held earlier this year on June 17, and the Redmond giant used the platform to announce new capabilities coming to Teams Rooms devices (including the Surface Hub). The company also unveiled its plans to bring Fluid components to Microsoft Teams meetings and other Office apps.
However, the page for the upcoming “new era of hybrid work” event says that it will allow organizations to learn about the future of work. It’s expected that Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella will announce new features and “product innovations” to help companies deal with the challenges ahead. “We are seeing one of the biggest changes to ever play out in the world of work. Every leader is focused on navigating the move to hybrid work, the evolving Delta variant situation and the shifting talent marketplace,” the company explained.
In addition to this September 9 digital event, Microsoft is also holding a new virtual Surface event on September 22nd. Many signs point that the company is planning to announce new Surface devices powered by Windows 11. It’s also possible we’ll see a new Surface Duo 2, a device that was spotted on benchmarks a couple of weeks ago.
